"I'm David green. And I'm Steve Inskeep. We have the story of a man behind an advance in democracy. He's a politician in Malaysia which effectively had one party rule that changed when the opposition won election last year, causing a peaceful transfer of power democracy may be retreating elsewhere but not in Kuala Lumpur. Here's how CNN sounded after national elections there last may celebrations across Malaysia as a new political era. Don's aftershock result in the national elections. To your Muhammed claimed victory after beating all the odds to snazzy Brazelle and the coalition party which ruled Malaysia for over six decades. Did that happen? We have the story of that change in power through the eyes of a man who spent years in prison for his politics and has now risen to leadership Anwar Ibrahim came by our studios over the last two decades. He was jailed repeatedly by other politicians and had reason to think he might never get out. But I'm incredibly an incorrigible optimist Anwar is seventy one he has dark hair and a salt and pepper goatee. The lines on his face around. His eyes hint at the stress of his captivity for years, he suffered the fate of many Malaysian opposition figures. He does not just the solitary confinement known as papers, no radio, nor television. You'd have anybody to talk to no book books. Yes. They gave you a book. What is your read? What's book that you read? Is there some way I reread the entire works of Shakespeare? Inequality. Stay wrote a book about economic inequality. Yes. Yes. That's a thick one. Because there's an advantage being in prison. He was able to finish the book. Here's how his life began to change. The ruling party that jailed him was engulfed in corruption scandals opposition grew and then a former ruling party leader montier Mohammed switched sides and took charge of the opposition coalition. Then he visited the imprisoned Anwar Ibrahim and asked him to serve as his deputy. The manifesto was clear Melissa must emerge as a mature democracy. There's no turning back. So the media must be free judiciary must be independent and anti corruption commission must be effective while it's early yet. Anwar Ibrahim says the first step toward healthy democracy is freeing up the media, he's helping to repeal and old sedition law. The government used to imprison people like him. But many others tousands others. I mean, relatively unknown, but they did suffer. Says that they will be charged prosecute and imprison for things that they express. I mean, we may agree or disagree. But I do think is our business to charge a charge and imprison them for their views. The man on top is my dear this man from the old regime. Yes. Which sites do you yourself expect to be prime minister of Malaysia with the agreement. Stipulates very clearly that Mugabe will hold office for maximum two years, which means school soon. I miss to sue the premission. Okay. So after that two year period, you take over as prime minister, and you may have another two to three years, and then you will face the people. I guess how will we know if you have succeeded at the end of that five year period. I'm optimistic because people want freedom is supposed to a more oppressive rule in the past. Secondly, if they know that the disasters the countries not squandered by the political elite, then the services and the benefits of the people will be larger there must be people who say, oh, he was an opposition leader. But now he sold out. He's with his former boss strew, infect MAI MAI MAI MAI daughter was vice chairman one device to have the party. Listen to resign. Because she thought that we are not as assertive in qualify for your daughter. Yes, was effectively critical of you, which I think yes, I mean, I would have to balance between the practical realities in terms of adjustments in this period of transition, and the fact that the young. Would want to have more assertive and consistent message. And I I find dick difficulty to dispute views a position all do. I sit patients is also a virtue. So you told her actually I think you're right about the facts. But I just have a different attitude about. We have fish after all because she said we have stuck over twenty years in and out of prison. The whole family was just shut it. But she says the idealistic youth, but she still supportive, but she's very critical. Does Malaysia need the United States? Yes. I think. I make no apologies. We need to Steve's usable vigorous progressive foreign policy. I'm I cannot see that we to hopeful of the present position of foreign policy states. Although personal cases you see from the days of President Clinton Bush Obama and less on the Trump might you. She was always raced at different levels. I shall a novice standing that the general attitude towards promoting democracy, of course, have been relegated to the background. And that is to me unfortunate. You must encourage countries with your Powell and resources to support efforts towards peace. See killed at the end democracy. You cannot be ambivalent talking about democracy, and they're supporting all the titans and dictate this of the world. So when you see the Trump administration grow even closer to Saudi Arabia, which the US has always been close to or even closer to the option military backed regime. This bothers you have no issues of countries having bilateral relations, three I'm not suggesting that we go to war with every country. But the position must be clear. Why do you choose selective condemnation or some countries for being corrupt and oppressive and some countries worse corrupt and oppressive continued to be offense. I'm Abraham.

"Studio today is David Crowe, our banking editor and down the line from Malaysia we have Stefania Palmer scientist Asia correspondent pulsa from New York. We have Laura Newnan US banking editor this week. We'll be discussing the latest ructions at Goldman Sachs as its Malaysian scandal. Deepens look at Standard Chartered as embarks on a buyback of shares. And finally an interview with Bob diamond, the former head of Barclays who is now investing on his own account through business. Atlas merchant capital, I o to Goldman Sachs and Stefania joins us from Columba. You Burke, a really interesting story on Tuesday morning that the premier-in-waiting and Ebrahim has gone pretty aggressively after Goldman in this long running saga about the one MD. And the agree just payments that were allegedly paid to Goldman Sachs for issuing them. Tell us what happened exactly essentially Anwar Ibrahim who should that been after current prime minister Monti Mohammed about a couple of years, essentially told me set Goldman should absolutely return significantly more than the six hundred million dollars at the Bank was paid for arranging three bone cells of for one MD the Malaysian state investment fund that is obviously now at the heart of one of the biggest financial scandals in history. And the main reasons thoughts on we're gave me or ops first of all the fees which to about ten to eleven percents. He found up to the exorbitant and indefensible, and then you also argued that this entire one of Dubya fear of which took Goldman is a part of is essentially a cost to the image of Malaysia. It's a cost to investments coming into the country, but also burden shouldered by the current government, which ousted not cheap Razaaq, the founder of one MD back in mate, we have to remember that the current coalition is also tackling quite an easy fiscal position. They've had to revise the twenty teen fiscal deficits from two point eight percent to three point seven percent in the latest budget, and they also face up to ten and a half billion dollars. In Dutch repayments actually linked to one MD. Where's this going from here? Do you think? I mean, clearly it's getting noisy all the time. Those various other actions, pending feels if on the ground in Malaysia younger is sent me mainting towards Goldman rather than dissipating the hope. Absolutely. I think they are hoping to target Goldman at the moment because it's obviously a case that is in full public view. It also comes on the back of the league est. Accusations coming from the department of Justice dots, essentially have said ops almost half of the six and a half billion dollars worth of one him to be the were arranged by Goldman where misappropriated the deal Jay has also accused two former bunkers of engaging in bribes toward Malaysian officials in order for the Bank to secure business from one to be. So there's definitely a sense here in Poland poor the top government officials are really just taking advantage into riding the wave of very strong momentum against Goldman, or at least putting very strong spotlight on how the Bank has been involved in all of this affair will. Let's get a perspective now from the other side of the world, Laura. You just heard from Stephania that. The Malaysian authorities are certainly ramping up pressure on Goldman is the same thing happening in New York as well. I think certainly the Bank is coming depression me, they continue to negotiate. With the deal Jay to see while sanctions of finding the firm Glenn to face as a result of this whole scandal. I think it seems reasonably likely will save these some sanctions a lot the control diesel internal work. They will probably look need some kind of a fine. The content of the fine is very much known of this have suggested that the financial penalty to go cooking basing that Goldman house to make up the entire of the to them or so that he's on a candidate for that with taking the one NTV raising mills paint this hundred million fees, which Scott that will get you to figure end she win to two point three billion of the very big number. That's Toby Specter's enough this point we don't know what kind of fine reconcilation the firm will face if any they made their goals other implications the firm, we don't we have a field with us. What we haven't said he's in the last few weeks ago voice has become under pressure..

"I think in some ways the problem with this commentaries that although it does a good job of these developing these criticisms against territory, in fact, Mahat here is an autocrat in the same way that detail is and so in some ways that let's Mahatma off the hook. But he seems to be doing something, right? It seems that he's public image at least slightly better absol-. Absolutely. I think people will argue that his return to politics his ability to manage the economy to to cement investor confidence at a time of substantial political transition has been all to his credit. The problem is that nobody knows when Anwar Ibrahim is going to become prime minister does this kind of certain Malaysian politics, and that's because Mahanta rules autocrat at a very basic level. Let's continue to Toyland next very interesting article from there how how how members of of some politics shifting elsewhere. Right. So this is related to toxin the part is of toxin Chinnawat. Here's a deposed prime minister. And he is still highly influential in Thai politics, one of his party's put tie is under huge pressure from the government. There's threats from the government to disband the party and also the military developed constitution has put a lot of pressure on a disadvantage. Ing. Large parties. So the basically the constitution is created to or crafted to disadvantage toxins parties. And in fact, what we have here is party. Switching going on across from one talks pro toxin party to another pro toxin party. This has happened already one time already when a previous pro toxin party was disbanded. And now, we're in the process of watching a gun and also it's not just members going from one party to another. It's also policy lead us in this case. Yeah. And this is where the articles very interesting because extensively what we could see is this part of leadership jumping ship because of the pressure. That's coming down from the government. They don't want to be around one the one the old parties disbanded, but actually the article raises some interesting insights into this is possibly about insight fighting across the leadership as well. And those who are Li leaving are leaving for political purposes for political reasons because of infighting good old these resulting in increased political instability. Instability, just before next election. I think this is a very interesting question. The the I don't think that this will result in any increased political stability, but we have to remember that these elections are not going to be open and fair and therefore any type of chaos that occurs beforehand is only going to work in the military's favor. Another story from Asian correspondent, Indonesia is to develop sharia compliant blockchain gold exchange. Lets you explain. Okay. What what's fascinating about? This piece is that there's there's a certain type of. Alchemy here on the one hand we have gold, which is a historically a very very important commodity. We have the brand new the new of the blockchain and then also. The modern religions or religious certification that comes with being sharia, certified this is the development of a gold based cryptocurrency, which means the cryptocurrency is digital transfer technology. Excuse me, it's a a distributed ledger technology, which will allow investors to rather than invest in a currency, which with hot large fluctuations of value. The the gold peg will allow that value to remain very stable and four Muslim investors who don't want to invest in speculative investments are usually based investments this ser- sharia, certified blockchain cryptocurrency would be perfect investment for them. How unique is this? It's there are two aspects of it which are not as unique as they may seem first of all it is Islamic finance is widely available in southeast Asia. So in that regard. It's not very unique and actually even gold basis law. Mc finance in terms of crypto currencies have been developing in the in the Gulf states. And also there's go base sharia compliant cryptocurrency in Malaysia as well just buying me. One most story, which is from channel news Asia, this this woman has been seen chasing off to a plane on Tomek at Bali airport after missing her flight, we don't quite know how this can happen..
